Just around the corner behind the tram is The Crown Hotel, I worked evenings and weekends here in the late 1970s as a barman. The landlord and his wife were Jack and Carol Senior. Prior to that he had been 'mine host' at The Scarborough Taps near Leeds Station.

I left No 1 Kimberley Street ca 1952 (to the right of where this was taken) And still remember the Tram all dressed up with Christmas Lights at the end of the year.
